Stop The War Stop The Killing Shut Down The Military Industrial Complex!

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article24891.htm

I want you to look very closely at this picture and try and keep it in your minds eye. This was a perfectly healthy twenty two-year-old young man who in the service of his country got half of his head blown off. I think that’s important, I think that’s newsworthy. Let me tell you how newsworthy I think it is. I think that it’s more important than chocolate cake recipes and far more important than comic book reviews. It is more important than who fell and whose swell at the winter Olympic games.

It is far more important than any self-serving load of crap banged out by Pseudo doctor Amy. It is more important than American Idol or Lost or any other mindless goat droppings the public chooses to chew on. This is some American mother’s son, her little boy, he may be gay or straight or transgender but his life is fucked forever.

How did this come to happen to this poor mother’s son? It came to happen because the people in the media who are supposed to foster a public debate on such public issues as war instead used their franchise to promote articles about chocolate cake and comic book reviews. They see their free press as free to choose not to look when bad thinks happen. They feel no need to explain to his parents or to anyone that the war that blew off half of this poor boys head was based on out and out lies.

It was a war perpetrated by people who hoped to gain from it be it in oil or pipelines or service contracts and like the media they don’t care that this mother’s son is mangled and mutilated. Do you care? I’ve been married twice for a combined twenty-five years and in that time I doubt my wives ever baked a chocolate cake. I don’t read comic books or watch goat crap TV but you see I’ve got a son about this boy’s age. My heart aches and my mind fills with rage because the people that have the power and authority to show this picture would rather talk about American Idol and from where I sit that makes them an accomplice to a war crime.

This is the most important

This is the most important issue. Pet ideologies need to be put on the backburner until war and its anti-liberty domestic results are ended.

Ventura 2012

we as human beings

have a personal responsibility to work hard a duty to help shut down wars -

otherwise we might as well be rats or serpents.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

Yes,I read that story

..very heartbreaking all this senseless killing and maiming of our soldiers and the civilians in the nations we invade and occupy.

If the media would regularly show pictures like this as well as the civilian casualties then I beleive the support to end these wars would be larger and much more vocal!

The recruitment numbers would go way down if young people saw more of these pics and heard the stories of the returning mentally and physically injured.

yes

support for war would quickly die down if this kind of photos appeared on the cover of Time Newsweek and so on...

"In the service of his country" -- NOT.

He served his GOVERNMENT, against the peace and security and actual interests of his country. Let's assume he had good intentions but was deluded by years of indoctrination of public schools and copious government propaganda. Well, so did the kids who joined the German army in WWII. I don't mourn their passing either. Stupidity has always been a capital offense. Think of it as evolution in action.

I'm over 60 years old, and in my lifetime the US military has done nothing I can point to and say "THAT was a good thing, THAT protected our lives, liberty and property." Nothing. The Founding Fathers had it right, about standing armies being a huge evil, a necessary adjunct to tyranny. Kids who want to "serve their country" need to be taught to value the deadly enemy of our authoritarian government: freedom.

Really.

23.2 million veterans are currently in the United States.

2,245,000 active military and reserve.

1,684,000 military dependents.

So, on behalf of at least 27 million, 129 thousand people, let me be the first of the group to tell you to please somehow identify the house where you live. Put a sign up, paint your mailbox a certain color. Anything, really.

Just something to let us know in the times coming exactly where you live so that we, in seeing it, know that you are one of the ones that have no issue paying the tab for us to die.

You have spent your entire life funding something that you are against. You have no issues with others dying, as long as it is not yourself. You wail and gnash your teeth about us, demonize and humiliate us.

Yet you keep paying your taxes like a good sheep... you keep footing the bill so that we can die.

Hypocrite.

You do nothing to stop it.

So once again, please somehow identify your home for us.

So we can return the favor in the days ahead.

By not stopping for you.

~Live life to its fullest, with an open heart, open arms and most important... an open mind~

Though I do not hold any contempt towards men and women in

uniform and I feel strongly for the plight of these ones, I do think you ought to answer the question, do they or do they not put their lives on the line for something 'other' than the American people's interest?

I mean, look at all these 170 countries with over 130 army bases all over the place? Is this for our 'freedom'?

Don't you think it is more important to call it what this is and to admit how egregiously wrong it is to USE earnest youth for something that is far from the truth?

It's YOU!

You're the guy in the picture, right? With half his brain blown off? I'm truly impressed that you can type as well as you do, even if the content is fact-free, sense-free, ad hominem, and functionally indistinguishable from flatulence.

You really, REALLY need to watch this: http://freedomain.blogspot.com/2009/03/true-news-28-statist-... Watch it at least three times daily until your symptoms start to dissipate. Then read The Iron Web by Larken Rose. http://www.larkenrose.com/store/34-books/46-the-iron-web-new... If that doesn't work, do yourself and the rest of us a kindness, and blow off the other half.

I'm powerfully anti-war, and . . .

that was mean.

These young people are victims of a culture gone wrong. So were Germany's youth. But, until I am where they have been, I have no right to judge them.

Call them foolish or stupid if your conscience lets you, but *you*/anyone are/is influenced by culture. If not, *you*/anyone live/lives in a vacuum.

The culture is polluted; the young people need to be awakened. To be heartless isn't the answer.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Yes, that was mean. And appropriate.

Insults are intended to hurt, or what's the point? Saunders doesn't pull punches, why should I? He started the name-calling, isn't it sad that someone returned the favor?

You write: "until I am where they have been, I have no right to judge them." Sure you do. Suppose you're a juror in the trial of an axe-murderer. While you're certainly opposed to axe-murdering, do you declare that you have no right to judge an axe murderer until you've been one yourself? Gotta laugh.
Criminal wars are not fought by noble warriors; they are fought by criminals. If the criminals are so stupid or deluded that they don't even understand that "following orders" does not absolve them of EVERY human being's responsibility to judge right and wrong for themselves, so much the worse.

You, too, would benefit from reading The Iron Web.

Dude, what the...?!

That you would make mockery of this young man's plight and wield that at someone in a forum squabble is very tasteless. >:(

good points

how easy it is for evil to gather us against each other and control us...make us kill each other for no reason.

Sorry,

I can't look at it - but here's a bump to the top.
Last night my almost 12 year old (step) granddaughter told me she thought it might be cool to join the military when she gets old enough.
I taught my kids that war is wrong and now I'm teaching my grandkids.
Don't ever stop teaching.

there are times when war IS

there are times when war IS NOT wrong. There is nothing wrong with serving in the Military. Its the idiot in the oval office who screws things up.

“Defiance of God’s Law will eventually bring havoc to a society.” - Dr. Ron Paul

Sorry,

I can't agree with that. But if you can name just one case where war was warranted in the last, oh let's say 100 years, then I might change my view on this.

Sorry, LL

I still can't look at it. But I'll tell you this - if my granddaughter insists on continuing to consider joining the military, I'll look it up to show it to HER!

Those who demonstrate with pictures

of botched abortions should add war photos to their demonstrations, and consistently be against killing.

What would happen if antiwar demonstrators used the same technique of showing grim war casualties of men, women, and children?

This organization does -

in a travelling college program that highlights genocide called GAP:

www.abortionno.org

(Successful abortions look the same as what might be called "botched".)

It's horrible that this tragedy could happen to anyone.

But it hits home realizing this person is the same generation as my daughter. She just turned 21.

The biggest problem...

... is the pro life pro war people who sit in church pews every Sunday and being told God will make you rich if your support Israel, which means bombing Iran. The stupidity of it all is mind-boggling. How dumb have we become.

Same people who laugh at the seven vrigins waiting in heaven

Either case heaven is reserved for the upstanding and righteous. Killing civilians does not earn a ticket through those gates.

Sacrificing your own on the altar of war worships the war god.

Free includes debt-free!

the only bridge to God

is Love.
